When will Golden Rice be available to farmers and consumers?

Research and development continues on Golden Rice.

Golden Rice will only be made available broadly to farmers and consumers if it is successfully bred into rice varieties suitable for Asia, approved by national regulators, and found to improve Vitamin A status in community conditions. If Golden Rice is found to be as safe and efficacious as other conventional sources of Vitamin A, a sustainable delivery program will ensure that Golden Rice is acceptable and accessible to those most in need.
